Reading reviews, I'm not sure I'm at the same Victory. Maybe because some of the posts are so old, but I'm so impressed with Victory. It is a well managed school. Principal Williams is kind and welcoming. My child's teacher is amazing. You can really tell his heart is in teaching. My daughter comes home singing and dancing songs that help her learn. She says he's "the most fun teacher ever." She loves school for the first time ever and I'm so glad we are stationed here. Navy should be thankful that they are zoned here and not Brighton. Everyone I know that got a waiver came running back here. I wish a PTA was more established at Victory.
It's and average elementary school. The front office staff knows me very well as I am an active parent and do not totally rely on the teachers to teach EVERYTHING to my child. I understand that they are measured by and for the SOLs. Anytime I have an issue, I just go onto the Power school App, email the teacher and I ALWAYS receive a same day response. Now, I do agree with some of the other reviewers on the amount of homework that my daughter has had in previous years. However, I also feel that if you are an active parent, you understand homework is a part of the education process and only gets worst as they get older.
Victory Elementary is a horrible school. My son will not be attending there next year. My son comes home with ridiculous assignments that are not preparing him for middle school. I would rather pay tuition at a private school.
This is my first year teaching at victory elementary and I couldn't be happier. There hasn't been one day this year that I haven't left work full of joy and gratefulness for the students and the staff. The ministration is fair, and the assistant principal makes the students and staff laugh on a regular basis. Students truly are cared for and come first at the school and you would be lucky to have your child to attend here. PS, you know it's a good school when most of the staff who has young children bring them to attend at victory.
Victory Elementary is the worst school my children have ever attended! The teachers talk bad to the kids telling them to "shut their mouthes" asking if they understand English. And the principle and assistant principle don't do anything about the bullying issue at this school. The kids are talked down to and noe ofte teachrs care abut them or their education, they keep demanding kids be medicated if they have a little to much energy or are bored and very advanced. This school is just a sick place to be, they have had issues with head lice and bed bugs! If you don't have to, DONT send your kids here!!
While I agree with some of the previous comments, the new leadership is 100% better than the previous one. The old leadership(principal) bullied teachers, staff and talked down to parents.....The school could be better but it''s much better now that the BULLY is gone!!
This may be the worst school on the planet. I do however adore one of the Kindergarten teachers. All I have to say is that Mrs. Angela Flowers is a complete failure to these students. When my son was threatened with his life this women was no where to be found. Her assistant principle is a complete airhead and blows stuff off as kids will be kids. I might also add that the office staff is so rude and I can't believe they are allowed to work with the general public. I have never felt so uncomfortable as I do in this school. I can not believe that the Military gives this school any funding. It is also a disgrace that the reason there is no communication between parents and teachers is because they claim to have no funding for paper to give to their staff. They also have no reading program for advanced children. Every person living within this area should petition to get The administration and office staff removed from Victory Elementary so they can stop failing their teachers and most importantly our children.
My children have gone to this school since it opened. It's on its second principal and while some things have gotten better, others either remain the same or have gotten worse. For example: the office staff are bluntly rude and disrespectful to parents. The math teacher must have changed because now my kids tell me that they don't get help when they ask for it or they get yelled at for disrupting the class because they need a little help. They're also told that this teachers previous classes already know this material so they should already know it. And no assistance is given. I am currently looking for a private school for my kids to attend next year. Guess what Mrs. Flowers, that means your school will not get the governments money for a military child as well as the money for just being zoned for your school. Perhaps you should look into protecting either the parents or the teachers instead of throwing both under the buss daily. Our kids get frustration at school from teachers, attitude from office staff and frustration at home because we don't teach our kids the "new methods" for doing things and then they are wrong at school - even if the answer was correct. Bad. Just bad.
